    USB 2.0 Video Grabber with Audio

    Capture standard definition video to your computer's hard drive using this USB 2.0 Video Grabber from Monoprice!

    This video capture device connects to a USB 2.0 port on your Windows-based PC. It features both a composite RCA and S-Video video input connection, as well as stereo RCA analog audio inputs, making it perfect for converting a VHS collection to DVD.

    It provides real-time MPEG 1, MPEG 2, and MPEG 4 encoding in both PAL and NTSC standards. The included capture software allows you to specify the encoding format for both audio only (mp3 and wma) and audio/video capture, from wmv to DVD quality. It provides functionality for both capture and playback of the captured files, so you can check the capture for quality and accuracy before working with it. You can also take snapshots of the video as it is being played or recorded.

    Note that the software supports capture and playback only. Third-party video editing software is needed to edit the captured files and third-party burning software is required to burn the video files to CD or DVD.


    • Real time MPEG 1, MPEG 2, and MPEG 4 encoding
    • Supports the WMA, MPEG-4, AVI, VCD, SVCD, and DVD audio/video formats
    • Supports video bit rates from 1.2 ~ 6.0 Mbps
    • Supports the WMA and MP3 audio-only formats
    • Supports a 224kbps audio bitrate
    • Capture snapshots in BMP or JPG format
    • Compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 (32- and 64-bit versions)

    Does what I needed very well
    I wanted to digitize my old Hi8 analog tape videos and a large number of old VHS tapes, so I could edit them and burn them onto DVDs. After searching and reading about all the various options, components, software, etc I had no idea what would be best for me to buy. Then I thought to see if my trusty source for cables and other inexpensive items, Monoprice, had anything and found this little jewel at an incredible price.

    I've used both the EZGRAB software that came with this, as well as the video editor from AVS4YOU that I already had, and both worked great. On my HI8 I used the RCA plugs for both video and audio, and from my VCR I used the S-Video and RCA audio plugs. Both the video and audio were at least as good as when played back from my HI8 camera and the VCR, and seemed to be sync'd up fine.

    One thing I noticed when I used AVS4YOU is that I had a fairly high number of dropped frames (the EZGRAB doesn't show you any stats about dropped frames). After doing some research, I don't believe this had anything to do with this product. I think my old trusty XP PC is in need of an upgrade so I'll have the resources to capture without as many frame dropouts.

    Once again Monoprice came through with a very solid product and the best price of anything out there that appeared to be able to do the same job.

    Works great on a PC
    Works great on a PC - make sure you have plenty of free hardware resources for best quality.
    Spent a lot of time trying to get it to work on Windows XP SP2 running in VMWare Fusion or Virtual Box on a MAC w/ no success. Have not tried w/ Boot Camp.
    When they said to use on a PC with Windows XP SP2/Vista/Windows7 they meant it.

    Great price.

    Works on Windows 10
    From reading the reviews, I was not expecting this product to work on Windows 10, so I first downloaded
    the "disc" from Monoprice website and installed it on to my old WinXP machine. None of the software
    downloaded from the Monoprice website worked for me. Then I looked at the cardboard packaging once more
    and realized it came with one of those tiny CDs and fold up documentation. The CD contains the driver
    and BlazeVideo application. I installed this on my WinXP machine and it worked! I saw the input video
    displayed in the application and the audio was coming through. Then I hit record ... my old WinXP machine
    was simply not fast enough to handle this.

    Then I tried the software on my Windows 10 machine. Despite the documentation saying that I could only
    install it on only one machine, I was able to register the application again on my Windows 10 machine.
    I saw the input video again, but this time no audio. So, I applied the Windows 7 audio fix mentioned
    in the documentation and it fixed the audio. I hit the record button and it saved my audio/video into
    ASF file. Not sure why the other reviewers are having trouble with Windows 10 - maybe Microsoft fixed
    it with an update.

    PROS: For the price, it works better than I expected (and it works on my Windows 10 machines).

    CONS: CD and doc hidden in cardboard packaging - almost thought it didn't exist.

    Sadly, can't get it to work
    I've seen other cap devices that looked like this that are essentially VC500 capture devices, they worked great, and I think this product use to be that same chipset. Now it is some "SMI Grabber 007"/SMIGRABBER3C, and I can't get it to work on Windows 7 x64 or Windows 8. Tried different ports, drivers on CD, updated driver from this site, even other drivers from online, etc. Nothing works to get it to work. Would like to return.

    PROS: Cheap

    CONS: Does not work, or works very irregularly (as in a slide show).

    Awesome for VHS tapes!
    I've been using this grabber to convert some old home videos to DVD for my mother and brothers, great little device, can't go wrong for the price either!

    Good service and great price as always is the place I go to I've always been pleased. I've only bought cables etc so I can't review them except to say prices are great and quality is very good. I trust them.

    PROS: service and price

    CONS: none
